There are some really helpful blogs out there for anyone going on their year out or just going off to Portugal for a bit. Here are some of my favourites.
Third Year Abroad – the classic, a brilliant resource with advice on anything you could think of for your Third Year.
Her Packing List – example packing lists for just about every trip you can think of and tips on the best girls’ travel gear.
Send My Bag – if you’re on a year abroad or even if you just want to post large items within the UK, I would really recommend Send My Bag. My mum sent me 30kg of stuff from the UK to here and it arrived in 3 working days, all at just £27! An excellent service!
The Well Travelled Post Card – Virginia’s already been there and bought the t-shirt when it comes to Erasmus, her blog is full of great tips for gap years, the third year abroad and beyond as well as some beautiful postcards!
